This could be the last time this year the mercury cracks 30 C — at least on the warm end of the thermometer — so take advantage of it.
Environment Canada is predicting a high of 33 C today. Already by 6 a.m. the temperature was 18.2 C in Winnipeg.
But with the heat comes a risk of a thunderstorm this afternoon.
Looking ahead, the national weather forecasters are predicting temperature highs in the low twenties including Saturday with 23 C, Sunday with 22 C, Monday with 22 C, Tuesday with 23 C and Wednesday with 21 C. Other than today, Monday is the only day they believe some rain will fall.
The mercury reached 28.5 C on Thursday with a minimum of 8.6 C and normal highs and lows for this time of year is 20 C and 8 C.
